The full wording of these resolutions can be found below:-

 

11.     To consider and, if thought fit, to pass the following resolution as an ordinary resolution:

That article 84 of the articles of association be amended by deleting the figure of "£300,000" and replacing with the figure of "£400,000".

12.     To consider and, if thought fit, to pass the following as an ordinary resolution:

THAT, in substitution for all subsisting authorities to the extent unused, the Directors be and they are hereby generally and unconditionally authorised, in accordance with section 551 Companies Act 2006 ("CA 2006"), to exercise all the powers of the Company to allot ordinary shares of one penny each in the capital of the Company and to grant rights to subscribe for, or to convert  any  security  into, shares  in  the  Company  up  to  an  aggregate  nominal  amount  of £4,115,561.24.

 

The authority hereby conferred on the Directors shall expire at the conclusion of the next AGM of the Company after the date of the passing of this Resolution or 30 June 2020, whichever is the earlier save that under this authority the Company may, before such expiry, make an offer or agreement which would or might require shares to be allotted or rights to subscribe for, or to convert any security into, shares to be granted after such expiry and the Directors may allot shares or grant rights to subscribe for, or to convert any security into, shares (as the case may be) in pursuance of such an offer or agreement as if the authority conferred hereby had not expired.

 

13.     To consider and, if thought fit, to pass the following as a special resolution:

THAT, subject to the passing of Resolution 12 above, in substitution for all subsisting authorities to the extent unused, the Directors be and they are hereby empowered, pursuant to section 570 and section 573 Companies Act 2006 ("CA 2006"), to allot equity securities (within the meaning of section 560 CA 2006) for cash either pursuant to the authority conferred by Resolution 12 or by way of a sale of treasury shares, as if section 561(1) CA 2006 did not apply to any such allotment, provided that this power shall be limited to:

(a)         the allotment of equity securities in connection with an offer of equity securities:

(i)         to ordinary shareholders in proportion (as nearly as may be practicable) to their existing holdings; and

(ii)        to holders of other equity securities as required by the rights of those securities or as the Directors otherwise consider necessary,

and so that the Directors may impose any limits or restrictions and make any arrangements which they consider necessary or appropriate to deal with any treasury shares, fractional entitlements or securities represented by depositary receipts, record dates, legal, regulatory or practical problems in, or under the laws of, any territory or the requirements of any regulatory body or stock exchange or any other matter; and

(b)                    the allotment (otherwise than under paragraph (a) of this Resolution 13) of equity securities up to an aggregate nominal amount of £1,234,668.37 (of which it is intended that nominal amounts in excess of £617,334.17 would only be used in connection with a recent or prospective acquisition),

and shall expire at the conclusion of the next AGM of the Company after the passing of this Resolution or 30 June 2020, whichever is the earlier save that the Company may, before such expiry, make an offers and enter into agreements which would or might require equity securities to be allotted after such expiry and the Directors may allot equity securities in pursuance of such offer or agreement as if the authority conferred hereby had not expired.

14.   To consider and, if thought fit, to pass the following as a special resolution:

(a)      the maximum number of Ordinary Shares hereby authorised to be purchased is 185,076,789;

(b)      the minimum price (exclusive of expenses)  which  may  be  paid  for  an  Ordinary  Share  is one pence;

(c)             the maximum price (exclusive of expenses) which may be paid for an Ordinary Share shall be not more than the higher of (i) an amount equal to 105 per cent. of the average of the middle market quotations for an Ordinary Share (as derived from the London Stock Exchange Daily Official List) for the five business days immediately preceding the date on which that Ordinary Share is contracted to be purchased, and (ii) an amount equal to the higher of the price of the last independent trade of an Ordinary Share and the highest current independent bid on the trading venues where the purchase is carried out;

(d)      the authority hereby conferred shall expire at the conclusion of the next AGM of the Company after the passing of this Resolution or 30 June 2020 whichever is the earlier (unless previously revoked, varied or renewed by the Company in general meeting prior to such time); and

the Company may at any time prior to the expiry of such authority enter into a contract or contracts under which a purchase of Ordinary Shares under such authority will or may be completed or executed wholly or partly after the expiration of such authority and the Company may purchase Ordinary Shares in pursuance of any such contract or contracts as if the authority conferred hereby had not expired.
